I got kind of tired of a lot of the silly bugs that were simple XML changes so i decided to make some changes for myself. Figured out I could share my files with you guys in case someone else wanted the same changes as well. Below is a link to the file, and the changelog as well. Simply drag the zipped folder into your mods directory and enable mods ingame to use the fix.
I will probably keep updating this mod as i discover new bugs or for balance reasons etc. Also, I am very open to changes from the community so dont hesitate to reply to this thread if you have any bugs i have not weeded out yet, og balance suggestions.
Crusade 2.13 Sainon Bug Fix and Balance Changes v1.0
-General Rearrangement of Tech Tree to be more similar to pre 2.13. Made Choices matter again and generally made tree more logical in its structure.

Removed adjacency bonus to affect pop and morale only

-Financial Sector acjacency bonus changed from +4 to +2. Added Maintenance of 1
-Extreme Precursor Worlds now only produce +1 Raw Production instead of +10
-Changed planet features giving bonus to Resistance to give the bonus to Ship Production instead - now it works for all military buildings such as
Military Academy and Planetary Defense System as well
-Changed planet features giving bonus to Social Construction to give bonus to both All Construction instead
-Changed planet features giving bonus to tourism to give bonus to Research instead as tourism is nonexistent in game

-Banking Sector made available again.

Social Manufacturing only

-Research Matrix building moved to Research Matrix tech from Integrated Research tech
-Research Array for Synthetics research bonus reduced from 12.5% to 10% - same as same tier manufacturing building
-Research Collective research bonus reduced from 10% to 7.5% - 5 research buildings instead of 4 require this, and Synthetics already get 2 flat bonus
research buildings per planet. Higher bonus earlier gives an even bigger edge
-Information Processor for Synthetics bonus reduced from 5% to 2.5% - same reasoning as above
-Removed Banking and Financial Sector for Synthetics. They have massive production and research bonuses already. Nerfing Eco power seems appropriate

-Manufacturing Starbase Modules added Xeno Industrialization chain for normal and synthetics
-Changed precursor Extreme world Raw Production bonus to +2, as the design intent from Stardoc seems to be +5 after checking official 2.13 patch files.
However, they forgot to change the bonus given after researching precursor studies techs. I changed it to +2 for all levels.
